With its suspenseful treasure-hunt plot, this sparkling picture book offers amazing hidden pictures and intriguing clues that lead to a surprise ending.
Tommy has received an invitation from Aunt Jeanne, but when he arrives at her Victorian mansion, she is nowhere to be found. Instead, he discovers rhyming clues that guide him through the different rooms-each of them more surreal and enchanting than the last. Lizards scamper through the parlor, the greenhouse swirls with butterflies, an underground tunnel teems with bats-and more! Fans of the I Spy and Look-Alikes series will delight in poring over the scenes to find and count over 400 camouflaged animals. Older readers may also spot the hidden letters. When unscrambled, they spell a message that reveals the wonderful surprise Tommy's aunt has in store: a magical birthday party!
Infused with extravagant detail, Michael Garland's illustrations will keep eagle-eyed readers busy for a long time before the last creature has been found and the last puzzle solved.
